This is the thread's initial revision.

Checkliste vs. Prüfliste

  • "Prüfliste" is a word very seldom used for "Checkliste".
  • In german the most usual word is the adoption of the english checklist (through the usage in aviation as far as i know).
  • "Prüfliste" is old fashioned and nowadays hardly used, probably younger people would wonder if it means checklist or "list of people to assess".
  • de.wiktionary.org doesn't know "Prüfliste", it has a article for "Checkliste" which is worked out very well and mentions "Kontrollliste" as a synonym, which, by the doesn't have an article itself.
  • dict.cc mentions both possibilities but shows "Checkliste" is much more common.
  • Only on leo.org i found a page were both possibilities are close by, but even their: "Checkliste" is higher up in the list.

We have to resume "Prüfliste" is, following objective references, a deterioration.
